This is what I love about gardening and blogging - you have advice from all around the world!
In the last frenzy of blogging queries there was discussion as to how other bloggers advice should be taken lightly. Since we are not all (heaven forbid) ... and I whisper here .... horticulturists!
In my last post I talked about my fruit trees, and Rainforest Gardener pointed out that my guava tree did not look like the pineapple guava that I thought it was. To all intents and purposes it looks like a yellow guava. see this link
So now I am in a quandry.
I love yellow guava - this is the guava that I grew up with in South Africa. This article says that they are not declared a pest..... yet. Host to the papaya fruit fly - gosh I dont like the sound of that. I really dont have the room to battle with invasive plants, so I am afraid it is going to have to go.
I love the idea that as world wide bloggers we can all lean over each others back fence and say... wait a minute - just check this out further, that plant might not be what you think it is.
so thank you Steve!
